2012 Plans

I thought since I had a good run of posts so far this year that I would reveal my hobby and blog plans for the rest of 2012.

Hobby Plans
This year I am hoping to paint two more Warhammer armies.  The first army is going to be Tomb Kings and the second army will likely be Orcs and Goblins, but that may change to Warriors of Chaos or something else that catches my attention..

I have been down on Warhammer 40k for a year now.  I think it's a great game but that it has gotten a little stale and that the army books have pushed a play style that doesn't fit me well.  There are two big things coming up that will rekindle my interests.

First are the rumors that Tyranids are going to get their long fabled 2nd wave of figures and this makes me really excited as it'll give me a reason to expand my Tyranids. 

I'm also really excited for the release of 6th Edition and if the game looks anything like the pdf that has gotten around than I will be very excited.  In addition to adding to my Tyranids I will be working on a new army once 6th Edition comes out.

Richard and I have long been lamenting that we both want to play a skirmish game but so far have not really found any that can hold our interest.  One of the things I want to do this year is to try a few new skirmish games and paint up a few armies for others I have already played.  I hope I can find a skirmish game that I not only enjoy but that I can also get other people excited for.

Miscellaneous Goals
I have been running a Savage Worlds game for a few months now.  It took a bit of a break because of the wedding and holidays but we're starting back up on Sunday and I am hopeful to run it more regularly going into the future.  I also hope to blog about it from time to time as I have anything interesting to share.

I have a few armies of Mighty Armies that I'm eager to paint and play.  It's a great game and they have survived many purges in the past.

In the very near future I will be painting my copy of Dreadfleet.  I'm very excited as the figures look great and the game looks like a lot of fun.

Finally, this year I hope to paint up a set of Castle Ravenloft or some other dungeon board game.  I remember being a kid and falling in love with Hero Quest.  I hope I can relive some of that with Castle Ravenloft or another game.

Blog Goals
It has been a lot of fun blogging.  I'm making a concentrated effort to blog every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  As of now the blog has been focused on miniature gaming but moving into the future I expect to have one post a week dealing with my love of professional wrestling or any rambling thoughts on politics and economics.  

I see keeping this blog active as not just a way to encourage my own hobby but to also practice writing.

I'm very excited for the year and I am hopeful I can keep to the goals I have set up!


  1. As skirmish games go, have you tried the Warmachine circuit out of GPC? I think they meet up on Thursday. Or is that not the style of skirmish your looking for?

    1. I actually got into Warmachine way back before Prime was released. I was into it in a big way before I got into 40k.

      I won't go into why Warmachine is a bad guy but I don't think it qualifies as a skirmish game anymore than 40k does. Sure, the mechanics work better as a skirmish game but the army sizes can get as large as 40k armies.

      Thanks for the idea, though!

  2. If your looking for true small skirmish then try Infinity or Dark Age is on the rise again
